Saint Rémi baptized Clovis, the first King of France (you can see the scene sculptured by the tomb of Saint Rémi). Three middle age Kings were coronated at that Basilica well before others were at the Cathedral.

This world heritage site really deserves its inclusion. Even if you are not a historian you cannot fail to feel the history oozing out of the stones of this beautiful interior.
